New software is being prepared for 20-year-old ATI Radeon video cards. This will be the open source Mesa Gallium3D driver

Almost any old video card with PCIe can be used in a modern PC without problems, but support for such adapters has long been discontinued. It turned out that new software will be released in the near future for ATI models of the Radeon R300, R400 and R500 series. True, unofficially.

The new software will be released soon as part of the open source Mesa Gallium3D OpenGL package. This is Linux software, so Windows users won’t get it.

In this case we are talking about support for very old video cards. The R300 line is not models like the Radeon R9 380. It’s the code name for a line that included models like the Radeon 9600 and 9700. And even the R500 line is the old Radeon X1000 cards. That is, we are talking about support for video cards, some of which were released more than 20 years ago.

It’s hard to say who and why still uses such 3D cards, many of which existed only with the AGP interface, but since work is underway, it means someone needs it.

An atypical mini-computer went on sale on the Chinese marketplace JD.com. The creators of the device, called Tianbao GEM12, integrated a small screen and even a fingerprint scanner into the body, which can work as part of the Windows Hello biometric identification function.

The mini-PC cooling system has two heat pipes and one fan. The screen is used to display the time, album covers when playing music, and processor load. There is an integrated 2.5 Gbps wired Ethernet adapter with two RJ-45 ports and a module that implements Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 communications.

It became known which video card the worlds smallest liquid cooled

Tecno brought to MWC 2024 the Mega Mini Gaming G1 mini-PC, which it called the world’s smallest liquid-cooled gaming PC with a discrete graphics card. The press release did not contain information about the video card, but now there is information.

It turned out that the mini-PC received a GeForce RTX 4060. There is no indication that this is a mobile version, although this cannot be completely ruled out. The Videocardz resource suggests that this is the RTX 4060 Laptop.

But if it’s a desktop adapter, that’s also pretty good considering the dimensions. In addition, the RTX 4060 consumes little power and supports DLSS 3. Mega Mini Gaming G1, let us remind you, has Thunderbolt 4 and Oculink ports, so you can connect an external video card to it without any problems.

MSI introduced the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super video cards as part of the Expert and Aero lines.

Both cards are quite unusual. The Expert models are distinguished by the design and construction of the cooler, which is similar to the coolers of the Nvidia Founders Edition reference cards. That is, one fan is located on the front, and the second is on the back.

The Aero model, in turn, is equipped with a “turbine”, that is, a cooler with a centrifugal fan. Let us remember that Nvidia actually prohibits the release of such RTX 4090 models, but the ban does not apply to younger models. However, there are few such adapters on the market, since for the average user, a “turbine” means, first of all, an increased noise level.

These cards are not yet on the MSI website, so it is unknown whether factory overclocking takes place.
